The Moon, The Poet Poem by Cigeng Zhang

The Moon, The Poet

Rating: 5.0


What is behind the poet?
A lonely heart through a night

What is behind the moon?
A crystal teardrop on a stone

The poet takes out his heart
He retains nothing

The tears shed from the stone
She says nothing

The poet stares at the moon
Heart in pain

The moon looked at the poet
Tears sweeten

The relation between moon and poet nicely explored in this poem, Like moon the life of, the mood of poet keeps swinging. Sometimes it amuses and sometimes it leaves wondering......A thoughtful poem, indeed.10++++
